About disorders of the CORNEA

Do you have questions about the cornea and disorders that affect the cornea?

Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions. If you think that you may have or have been told that you have a cornea disorder, call us!

Important!

  • A website can go only so far in answering your questions about glaucoma. Your eyes are unique and your vision is precious and should be evaluated by an eye care professional.
  • You should seek medical attention from an eye care professional if you are having troublesome eye symptoms.
What is the CORNEA?

The cornea is the clear “window” covering the iris and the pupil of the eye. For vision to be clear, the cornea must be clear.

What does a CORNEA specialist do?

An ophthalmologist who is a cornea subspecialist has additional fellowship training and experience in evaluation of the cornea and the diagnosis and management of corneal disease.

Dr. Roussel is fellowship-trained in cornea transplantation. He is well-acquainted with various aspects of eye banking, and corneal topographical analysis. He performs corneal transplants (both traditional full-thickness and partial-thickness transplants sometimes called “endothelial keratoplasty or a “sutureless” transplant), provides pre- and post-operative care, and trained and experienced in managing any complications that may arise. He also treats corneal dystrophy (sometimes called “Fuch’s Dystrophy”), dry eyes, keratoconus, and corneal scars and infections.
